    right i want to make my e36 completely key less...
    it has aftermarket immobilisers and alarm so every time i get in to start it up i need to press the button.
    would it be possible to wire a 3 way switch as in off/first turn/second turn then a push button for the start to make a key less starting system???
    i am a electrician and would be able to wire it up whit no probs if some one could point me in the right direction as what i need to do it and how
    many thanks josh

    Do you mean you don't want to use the key at all ? as that diy shows you need to put the key in the ignition barrel and turn to position 2 and then press the start button ?
    Either way it's easy enough to but please use the correct amp relays and insulated spade connecters other wise your risking fire, oh and if you go for not using the key at all i hope your alarm/immobiliser is very good andyour insurance will still cover if the car is nicked ???

    You'll be safe with regards of having no EWS to worry about, but your car will be really easy to steal.

    you don't need relays. just make sure your aftewrmarket allarm is installed correctly and put the green and purple ignition wires on oneside of the switch and red on the other as black will be on the button but also the red will be too so you will need to split this.
